HeadlineDec 07, 2017

Only one day after Michigan Democratic Congressmember John Conyers resigned in the wake of sexual harassment accusations, his son, whom Conyers endorsed to take his seat, is now also facing questions about gender violence. John Conyers III was arrested on suspicions of domestic violence in February after an argument with his girlfriend in which she suffered knife cuts. He was not prosecuted, and he says it was his girlfriend who pulled the knife on him. She still has a restraining order out against him. And New York Public Radio has put hosts Leonard Lopate and Jonathan Schwartz on leave amid investigations into allegations of sexual harassment.
